VIDEO: Busted Poverty Warrior Maxine Waters’ Plush $4.5 Million LA Mansion: Indoor Swimming Pool; Outdoor Gates & Walls

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

How can a member of Congress afford a $4.5 million Los Angeles mansion that takes up half a city block in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country? Ask Maxine Waters.

Ask her about her other two homes as well, worth another approximate $850,000 to $1.1 million. Savvy real estate acquisitions for a public servant with a $174,000 House of Representatives salary. Whoops, almost left out Maxine’s time share property in Palm Springs, CA. Add that to her list.

Only one of her homes is located in the gritty LA congressional district which she was elected to represent. Her exclusive estate is miles north — well outside her congressional district — far away from LA’s street crime, murder and the folks she is supposed to help. Apparently, Maxine has addressed concerns about help. A private company maintains her property and impressive manicured landscaping at the mansion.

Oh, we almost forgot this too. Waters’ posh 6,000 square foot LA estate is protected with wrought-iron gates at the front doors and gates for driveways and patios on each side of the Mediterranean-style abode. And add a long brick wall that protects the side of the sprawling property. There are some gates and fencing in the back too, near the custom barbecue area and the detached structure that houses Maxine’s newly built indoor pool. Or is the swimming pool in the main house? We’ll have to ask the butler.

For someone who touts a wall-free society where illegal aliens can roam free, Waters sure seems concerned about gates and walls to protect her in the LA mansion. Perhaps she’s worried the wayward homeless or DREAMers might pool hop or grille a Salisbury steak while she’s busy on CNN railing about President Donald Trump or how she really cares about financially-strapped Americans struggling to make ends meet.

The Waters estate boasts large scale rooms touted as “perfect for for gracious entertaining” in one LA-based publication. It includes a “stunning entry with dramatic staircase. Lovely pecan paneling in family room. Guest house too!”

Who keeps an eye on the place when Maxine is on the east coast fighting world poverty and hunger? Her neighbors include the mayor of LA, singer Chris Brown, Norman Chandler, the owner of the LA Times, actor Neal McDonough, Lord Baltimore’s Christian Audigier, among many others including the former Tudor Revival style mansion of deceased oil magnate J. Paul Getty. The mayor of LA resides in the former mansion of Getty. He’s a Democrat too.

And all this time Maxine had America conned into believing she was elected to her D.C. post to help the downtrodden folks struggling in poverty-plagued inner cities like the one in her backyard. Well, not that backyard. That could get dicey. Those folks might want to get out of the sun and use the air-conditioned indoor pool area. What, your 100-year-old imported marble floors are too good for the homeless?

Wait, it even gets more ridiculous. We found approximately 17 building permits on file since Waters purchased this home in 2004. Waters had many additions built on the nearly 100-year old property, costing another estimated $1 million-plus, according to our math. Likely more. She commissioned the indoor pool built and even paid a plumber to pipe hot and cold water, as well as propane gas to her outdoor grilling area and custom kitchen. She added a pergola too, building records show and an additional 15’x18 custom patio cover. Hey, before you judge: It gets hot in LA and shade is a premium. Ask any homeless veteran.

Some of the building permits filed on the tony Windsor Square section home provided details like “Interior remodel in kitchen family room and master bathroom. addition french doors and windows relocate windows remove interior walls. addition shearwalls and beams at ground floor.” Many other permits did not give explanations of the home improvement work.

Waters’ house takes up the same geographic acreage as two of her neighbors’ properties combined. That’s an extra large carbon footprint, especially in Los Angeles.

Typical Democratic phony loaded with multiple homes, cash and the walls and iron to protect them from would-be troublemakers.

Waters, who rails about Trump’s financials and tax returns, filed her most financial disclosure form with Congress in 2015. She lists her approximate net worth in the $450,000 range. That’s a mere fraction of the amount of the home improvements made to her LA estate. Waters lists the mortgage on her LA mansion at somewhere between $1 million and $5 million. What’s a few million between D.C. friends?

Please tell us again, Maxine: Who should be investigated and impeached?

Maxine rants about the plague of homelessness & the GOP’s contribution to it. The irony is thick. Worth clicking and reading the story while she talks about poverty in America.

Built in 1924, Waters’ Mediterranean-style estate is worth $4.5 million today

Deadbolt gates on the front doors, gates on the driveways, patios. So much for carefree border-less living.

Flanked by a long brick and landscape wall that run half a city block.

Main house, guest house, outdoor barbecue island and kitchen are seen here.

A view from Maxine’s neighbor who also boasts a large and long wall.

The sprawling property dwarfs the two properties behind it.

East Coast digs. Maxine’s D.C pad across the street from the Albanian & Costa Rican embassies.

    How do the political people amass so much wealth? I wonder.

  • keymanjim

    The people that whine about President Trump’s tax returns should be asking for the returns on all members of congress that became millionaires while in office.

  • Deplorable Sparkle Plenty

    Marxist Maxine is your typical Demonrat. She’s convinced all the dumb dumbs that vote for her that’s she’s fighting for them. Meanwhile she’s raking in big bucks from all the lobbyists, special interests and everyone else whose bidding she’s doing. She couldn’t give a rats a$$ about her constituents. She’ll pander to them when she needs to be re-elected and then promptly forget all about them.

  • Dale Messerly Jr.

    Yet the fools in LA keep electing her to look out for her, opops I mean their interests.

  • MatFan

    Just a typical Liberal. Totally corrupt.

  • Constance Oyama

    I agree!. It amazes me when they go in they haven’t got that mush but when they come out they have millions. Robbing American people

  • Constance Oyama

    That’s why they like high taxes to put their hands into it.

  • Constance Oyama

    All the Democrats need to be put out to pasture. They do nothing for American people.

  • AlwaysRight

    Work? What work? Most of our politicians have never done a honest days work in their life, yet they’re rich because of their insider info and crony payoffs and kickbacks. She doesn’t even mow her own yard.

  • Ritchard

    Didn’t she bankrupt New York’s OTB while director a few years back or was it some other person of color.

  • pinnie

    Maybe we can get a petition going to see Waters and Hubbies taxes.? I’d like to know how the hell they are living large….Huge actually.

  • Jeanette406

    Insider trading.

  • dobber 1029

    this woman is clearly to stupid to afford a home like this and the place in DC at her salary, you do the math. another fraud who feels entitled to screw the American Public

  • Robert Nather

    Even Ryan sleeps in his office because he can’t afford two households.

  • Tim Francis

    Maxine and Nancy Pelosi don’t even live in the districts they get elected in. Oh, they keep “property” there but never live in it. Pelosi lives on a sprawling vineyard in Napa.

  • Steve

    This is the same “highly educated” congresswoman who recently stated during a CNN interview that Trump should be impeached because he did nothing to stop Russia from “invading and continuing to advance into” North Korea. Shortly after that Pelosi stated that “illegal aliens shouldn’t be arrested until they do something illegal” wtf. Way to keep up with current events ladies. Must be something in the CA water.

  • Marie Gilleece-Saez

    I agree..

  • Marie Gilleece-Saez

    Exactly.. That is why they are all against Trump, in fear that he exposes all of them.

  • BooBooBaby

    We Need to make copies of this article and post it Everywhere!!! We Need her Voting base to see and know this!

    This woman is just as Corrupt as ALL the other DemonRat Libt4rds!!!

    Bernie Sanders also got a a lot of money from the Democrats and
    Hit-Liar-y Clinton to be on there side… he got himself a Brand new Beach Mansion, a new Yacht, a new expensive Car, and etc….nice Gifts to be Corrupt! (Isn’t this illegal!?)

    If only we had real investigating Journalists/Reporters exposing these sorts of things more so we could Stop this!
    Thank God for the few we have, because most are Brainwashing Lunatic Lying Libt4rds! Very sad!

    God bless the person who wrote and posted this article! Keep up the Great work! We need people like you.

  • olderwiser

    Term limits now.

  • Eugene Kaptur

    Won’t work! Her “voting base” doesn’t know how to read nor write, all they know how to do is place an “X” next to the DONKEY symbol!

  • MsSgt3

    Once again, unfortunately, it’s a COLOR thing …… hey, you ‘people of color’… please tell me what this twit has done fr you? Guaranteed, her ONLY interest is herself and family.

  • Over it

    I don’t understand how anyone would think this is OK and support her? What am i missing? She’s a disgrace to California and any hard working American.

  • Ellen Green

    Totally agree. She has been ripping off the taxpayer for years.

  • Marnee

    I believe her “voting base” is the same illegals that voted for Killary.

  • dyrwolf

    Since msm will remain silent, as usual, she will be able to continue to fool her robotic, sheep-like voters.

  • Jordan48

    HYPOCRACY abounds when it comes to defining who Maxine Waters IS. She is a very clever manipulator of facts. She is worth approximately $8.7 Million dollars on the down side and in excess of $12.4 Million on the upside, if you track down all of her “off shore” bank accounts, her various investments, and the under the table loot that she has handed to her by special interest groups. Shame on you Maxine. Like Harry Truman once said: “Anyone who gets rich in politics, is a crook.”

  • She made a fortune on a sweetheart bank stock deal and hides all the crony capitalism deals in her husband’s finances. When the bank was in trouble like all others after the financial crisis, she had regulators back off any action.

  • Wayland Ethridge

    This is the bottom of the slum monsters who make up the cesspool swamp. Look at the Clintons, from HOPE Arkansas without a pot to pee in, then to the governorship of Arkansas that paid only a small amount back then, then to the U.S. They are now worth millions and millions. This sludge is everywhere in Washington and has been for years. Everyone in the country knows about it but the only Americans who can do anything about any of the stealing hypocrites are voting people. U.S. people need to get educated and know what is going on and what tax dollars are wasted and how. Most Americans are totally ignorant concerning the way government is supposed to work and how it really works. If half the public was aware, all lawmakers would be out and new ones in within the next 5 years. Even most “democrats” would be appalled! To start, cut out most of the welfare. Many Americans think of nothing except “what it can give me” when they vote. They just don’t give a damn otherwise.

  • bobbi

    Term limits, but it is not going to happen. Because the likes of Maxine Waters want to continue to steal from the America people.

  • Linda Fletcher

    And the folks in Maxine’s district have an excuse to expect the gov. to give them something….that after seeing how Maxine lives. Look what the gov “gave” her !! Disgusting.

  • Daniel W

    How do you splain that Lucy???? This ain’t southern liven I wish to hell I could make 174,000 a year AND HAve the houses that you have,Hey by the Way How did You Do That Maxine.Now Put your head between your legs and KISS YOUR ASS GOOD BYE,YOU MORON???

  • truthseeker

    Just like the Free Education that Bernie likes and latter we find out his wife got a 6 point figure and then the College goes bust.

  • Grooveman2

    While representing a predominately black constituency, Maxine’s estate is located in a rich neighborhood where blacks represent only 6% of the population. But I’m sure she returns infrequently to the district she represents to beg for votes and donations.

  • Denise Clinton

    HA! And to think a few years ago the democrats were whining about the rich republicans!! I think there are probably more rich democrats!!!!
    I’m not opposed to people being rich whether through inheritance or hard work. I say make as much money as you can. But don’t act like you’re for the poor people when you aren’t personally helping them.

  • Rayzor Cardona

    Oh yeah she ready for a fall .

  • Lance Cotten

    she is one despicable woman! she is the perfect example of an arrogant, condescending liberal! When is the last time she held a town hall meeting for her down trodden electorate? when she meets with HUD secretary Ben Carson she said she is going to tear his A$$ apart.. Be careful Maxine you might be the one who’s A$$ gets torn a new one by the good Dr…. She is definitely part of the swamp that needs to go!!!

  • Veritasortruth

    She’ not as clever a manipulator as many think. She’s a bought and paid for marionette. The question is who is pulling the strings?

  • Jordan48

    My bet is that it’s George Soros directly or one of his sponsored leftist seditionist groups. But, what really matters is that she is just a high price paid political prostitute who serves the desires of her own belly and not the interests of those who placed their faith in her by voting for her. Like so many DemonicRats and a fair part of the RepubliCons, along with leftist jerks like Michael Moore, Woopi Goldberg, and others, they are just brain dead hypocrites.

    For example, Moore is worth approximately $50 million, but he climbed to prominence hating the top 1 percenters, damning the conservative establishment, and just being a libtard hypocrite. Hey…Michael…if you still hate the rich, then give all your money away to the poor oppressed black people of Los Angeles! Give $25,000 to the poorest family on each block in the hood. put your money where your hypocritical mouth is! And that goes for Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Russell Crowe, Robert DeNiro, Ben Aflect, and all the rest of you libtard Nazi’s. That is what Socialism is you know. it’s a reformation of National Socialism.

    She made sure her husband got that cushy high paying job in the banking industry and “his investments” in that bank have paid off really well.

    Some people vote based on looks, not the facts.

    I am a liberal democrat (is there any other kind of democrat) and I agree. All tax returns should be open to the public…yours and mine too…..!

  • Gary Zimmer

    You have her convicted of crimes…no trial, no investigation…declaring SHE IS GUILTY…..we should apply that same type of justice to you…this is America, correct…..maybe she inherited the money? In actuality…we don’t know….but, I’d like to know!
